Valentine’s Day has come and gone, and the weather may be toying with our affections, but Spring has come to our shop, and she’s unpacking her bags. You’ll find spring clothing, housewares, flowers, chicks and bunnies this week at Elite Repeat!
Yes, this is the year you will write your book. Is it a novel? A travel journal? A nostalgic look at low-tech? In the best traditions of great writers of the past, you need a Remington Portable Model 5. You can take it into the field or set it up at a sidewalk cafe. Scoff at anyone who stares–this sweet thing is a lot cheaper than an iPad. No bulky screen. Keyboard and printer all in one!
Unusual, collectable and occasionally rare, we have books of every stripe. If they are valuable or delicate, you’ll find them in our display case at the check out counter. If they are not so valuable but terribly interesting nonetheless, you should look for them in our craft section. If they’re simply a good read, check our book department. Here are a few examples of what you’ll find:
We’ve been blessed with a collection of tabletop looms, tools for hand-weaving and books on the subject. We also have amassed a good many handmade quilts, both old and new. A display of these treasures is ready for your shopping pleasure.
Elite Repeat will be closed on Wednesday, July 4, 2012.
We will return to regular hours on Thursday morning at 10 o’clock. So celebrate your independence!
We’ll see you soon!
Yellow to shade the eyes from bright daylight and frosted to focus the eyes on a target, these rare shooter’s glasses date from 1880 to 1900. The wire temples are designed to wrap around the ear so the glasses will stay put while horseback riding. The right temple hinge extends a full 180° to facilitate getting the glasses on and off. Does the clear, dime-sized circle in the center of each lens actually help the shooter focus? Probably not. But that in no way lessens the cool-factor of this unusual, authentic eye wear. These glasses are $95 at Elite Repeat. We also have a pair of 1860s reading glasses, a pince-nez from the early 1900s and a pair of 1940s gold-framed specs in the jewelry case.
…at their next bridge game.
Marie Antoinette and a chateau full of other historic French nobility on the face cards will lend a certain je ne sait quoi to your next bridge soirée.
